Senryu/Haiku Quartet, Dump Trump 80

March 31, 2020

in Trump’s Washington
the best have departed; the
worst have stayed behind

a stimulus check
don’t do much good if you ain’t
alive to spend it

coronavirus
Trump’s botched response makes us all
fish in a barrel

first rule of crisis
management: always tell the
truth; Trump can’t do it

Senryu/Haiku Quartet, Dump Trump 79

March 30, 2020

by failing to test,
trace and quarantine, Trump let
the viruses out

a fit President
would not have let the virus
get out of control

Trump’s virus failure
has fucked us all and his base
says ‘Fuck us some more’

except for the old guy
no one on Trump’s Virus Response Team
seems to know what the hell they are doing

Trump’s virus response
makes America a third
world country again

the pandemic will
end not with a bang but with
a whimpering Trump

Trump’s virus fuck up
is a train wreck happening
right before our eyes

U.S. doctors and
nurses have to wear trash bags
because Trump screwed up

Trump fucks up test kits,
face masks, ventilators; tries
to blame Obama

Hey Trump, do us all
a favor; shut up and let
the scientists talk

Trump doesn’t make
America great; he makes
America sick

a fit President
would have stockpiled face masks
and ventilators

Senryu/Haiku Trilogy, Dump Trump 77

March 26, 2020

Trump ignored warnings
now there are shortages of
everything but lies

Trump’s mismanagement
has killed stock portfolios,
will kill grandparents

Trump’s bullshit bailout
just another scheme to give
money to the rich

Senryu/Haiku Trilogy, Dump Trump 76

March 25, 2020

upscale partiers
ignore social distancing
infect a whole state

affluents party
like it’s 1999
spread Covid-19

Weston Westport Health
District as unprepared
as Trump’s CDC

Senryu/Haiku Quartet, Dump Trump 75

March 24, 2020

wash hands often, cough
into elbow, don’t touch face,
keep safe space, stay home

first the palms, then the
fingers, then the knuckles, then
the backs, then the thumbs

Republican hogs
belly up for slops from the
virus bailout trough

Democrats try to
protect poors and non-profits;
Trump tries to screw them

Senryu/Haiku Quartet, Dump Trump 74

Trump and his gang of
inept schmucks are up virus
creek without paddles

Hey Trump, Stop lying
and start taking actions and
making decisions

the buck stops with Trump
he and his gang of schmucks just
ain’t gittin’ ‘er done

just assume
Trump is ignorant
and lying

without aggressive
testing and quarantine, self
isolation won’t work

Trump is managing
the virus crisis like a
fart in a cyclone

unless Trump gets his
shit together we will self
isolate forever

modern day plagues: Trump,
the Republican Party,
coronavirus

please stop broadcasting
Trump’s incoherent
virus briefings

Trump and his gang of
zombie foamers ignored the
virus for two months

Senryu/Haiku Quartet, Dump Trump 72

Trump’s appalling lack
of leadership skills retards
the crisis response

liars cannot be
leaders because they cannot
earn the Public Trust

Trump’s America
is not prepared to deal with
the virus crisis

members of Congress
used inside info to dump
stocks before the crash

Senryu/Haiku Duet, Dump Trump 71

Trump’s America
rich people get tested first
for Covid-19

Trump’s America
the government does not have
its shit together
